Plantar Warts/Verrucae

Warts are caused by an infection with the human papilloma virus (HPV) and usually appear as small, rough lumps that often develop on the skin of the hands and feet. They can occur in isolation or in clusters and vary in appearance depending on the skin thickness and area affected. Verrucae are more commonly found in children and teenagers.

Warts are very contagious, and are usually spread by:

  • Close skin-to-skin contact
  • Contaminated objects or surfaces, such as the area surrounding a swimming pool.

Contact your podiatrist if you have a growth on your skin that you are unable to identify or worried about.
